    New Bronco

    Yeah it's tic-toc, sorry. And it seems to be just abusing the rig for abuse sake. It's the clip with the yellow Bronco obviously. https://www.tiktok.com/@jeep4life20

    That was me about 6 or 7 months ago. Found a 95(?) DI not running in SC for $650. Sat around thinking about it before I decided WTF. Emailed the guy and it was gone. I console myself by telling myself it was probably rusted out but man I fucked that up.

    Protecting the cats

    IDK if there is a market for it but an alarm system based on sound would seem to solve the problem. Once the db raised above a certain threshold an alarm would sound. Hard to saw a cat off without making a little noise.

    Protecting the cats

    A bed of nails is going to get you a destroyed Disco. Think about it. pm Correct me if I am wrong, but given the fact that someone has shown up to cut off your cats aren't all you doing is making him work a little harder? For that to really work wouldn't it have to be hardened? Plus, I'd just...

    Protecting the cats

    So being bored at work this morning I looked it up. The Toyota Prius has the highest rate of stolen catalytic converters. It being a low emission vehicle their converters have more of "that stuff" in them. SUVs and trucks are targeted only because of the ease in getting to the catalytic...

    >On the second day of the operation, police paid surprise visits to five of the “core buyer” businesses and asked to see the records of sale regarding catalytic converters. Current Indiana law gives police access to such records without a warrant.< >A new Indiana law, which took effect July 1...

    WTF, the Hyundai Santa Cruz for TOTY. I guess these mooks would have voted the El Camino truck of the year. 2022 North American Car, Truck and Utility Vehicle of the Year finalists revealed https://www.foxnews.com/auto/2022-north-american-car-truck-utility-vehicle-year-finalists

    New Bronco

    That makes me really interested in one. I'm not an overlander or let's throw in the fam, dog, tent, etc, and go camping. I'm a pick up a couple of friends, or maybe the fam minus all the frills, and hit the trails. As such there is a certain footprint I don't want to exceed and a Wrangler is...

    2020 Defender

    Yeah IDK about the fan thing. I took the CJ into water that was well into the fan level and never had a problem with the fan throwing water onto the engine. Now, to be honest, I was in the driver's seat and not in the engine compartment, so the fan may have in fact thrown water onto the motor...

    2020 Defender

    If you scroll down pics on this site it would suggest you are wrong. https://drivingfast.net/driving-in-deep-water/ I am reluctant to offer advice as to offroading here because most of the conversation involves rock crawling or some form of Overlanding out west. That said I've spent a lot of...

    2020 Defender

    I think that depends.. Conditions and skill. Blasting through or driving unevenly, or slow, through water might have different outcomes than entering at a constant speed and creating a bow wave. "We brake for fish" would be on the lower side.

    Cheer up young lady, you're one sex tape away from owning your own Classic.

    OK, what am I missing? Why in god's name is that Rover on its side there. :unsure:

    Dude the new compact tractor your neighbor owns is more complicated than your DII. We had a skid steer with a brush grinder delivered that almost immediately threw a code. Service tech called and out comes the scan tool.

    I'm not going to get caught up in your BS again. I'll leave you with this. 1-877-SAMHSA7 Call.... One more thing. I'd have to assume the only reason the site owner allows you to stay is you're a tech, so you add value. That offset's your maniacal desire to run off other board members.

    2020 Defender

    Not a recall but they had/have a problem with the hardtop models that halted deliveries. I'm not sure if they have that sorted out. And then the chip problem almost all dealers are having. The mechanic at work took his truck to the local Ford dealership to get the front end aligned. While he was...

    2020 Defender

    I'd agree with that statement. I've watched some old Range Rover commercials and they touted it as a luxury vehicle that was also a very capable offroader. I don't think you can say that about any of their offerings now. Maybe the Defender, if you want to drop, IDK what, 70k on a rig and then...
